Most painters struggle to build a successful business on their own because...

  • They can't find leads in the slow season.
  • They can't find help in the busy season.
  • They are going it completely alone.
  • They don't have a proven system for running their business.
  • They struggle to stand out in a sea of painters.
  • They burn out because they take their work home with them.
When you become a certified Craftsman Painter you will be able to confidently deliver quality results to your customers and successfully grow your business.
